Just interested to see if anyone fishes this area of Ontario. My group will be making it's 12th trip to the area later this summer. We stay at Moose Creek Camp about 8 miles north of Silver Dollar. We fish a number of different lakes in this area. Some of our favorites are Wintering, Sowden, Sturgeon, Young and Watcomb. I would enjoy comparing ideas and stories with fisherman who have spent time in this area. JEP

Has anyone been down the 325 road, this is the dirt road that turn off to the west just above/north Ignace and heads back to Agimac River camp, then on to Kukukus, Arethusa, Flatrock etc.   Interested in what high water may of done, there is several spots that even in moderate rain can get dicy.   Any update is appreciated.

Just got back from a long weekend at the cabin. Sturgeon Lake has water levels I would say at 3 feet above normal. It actually makes things quite dangerous unless you have an excellent memory some of the rocks that were always above water for the last 20 years are now a foot or so below and I actually found a couple of them. Nothing serious but gives a person a scare. I did not get to fish a lot because I had to spend time getting the cabin opened up. I did have good walleye fishing and on sturgeon but pretty much all the walleyes fighting were above 20 inches. One afternoon I went to flying loon to catch some eaters and had good fishing there as well  water in Flying Loon is up 4 feet from what it normally is. The landing there or lack there of is something to see basically docking the boat in the road having to back all the way down. Thelittle bit I tried for lake trout was rather slow we only picked up one nice one.

Those are the lakes we fish also. But have never fished sowden. How is the landing there?

I will definitely send a report but it probably wont be till the Monday after we get back.

Good luck 14 ft!  We will be there the following week.  We usually fish Young, LOB, Wintering, Sowden, Sturgeon, etc.  If you could post a report for your week that would be awesome!  Missed out the last 2 years so I'm hoping the fish are hungry!

Headed to Young Lake Lodge June 3rd. Hopefully crossing the border about 5 pm. Staying over night in Thunder Bay and should be fishing by 2 pm Saturday. The fish should be hungry.

I talked to Debbie at Young Lake Lodge Sunday. She said the ice went out on Young Lake 5/14 and they had guests coming in today for "ice out" pike.

Thanks for the reports.  We hope to have enough water to get into some lakes.  Hopefully the lakes will be free of ice soon.

Talking to one of the camp owners on the North End of Sturgeon earlier this week, and it sounds like the extremely low water levels have been dramatically erased with the snow melt and rains.  Went from almost 3 feet below normal to above normal with the run off.   That is good news, last August I was on pins and needles scooting around on Sturgeon with the low water.   

The only draw back is they expect that some of the bays will be open, but they anticipate the main lake may still have ice on it for the opener.   

Will be up in less than a month to some of the smaller lakes north and west of Ignace.  Relieved water levels are back up.  Some of the passages are bad enough at regular levels.

Walleye 88 I had heard that this past winter is a ridiculous amount of snow and I witnessed that firsthand when I was there ice fishing that amount of snow certainly will help water levels but to my knowledge they don’t have open water yet. last year was the lowest I’ve seen Sturgeon Lake since I’ve been coming up and that’s since 1999. In the middle of March there was 36 inches of ice and Close to 4 feet of snow in the woods.

Dodger after the middle of June I use downriggers to get the spoons down to the depth I want.
